Meet Idols SA 2018 ‘Season 14’ top 16 contestant Dalene.
So who is Dalene?
Full Name: Dalene Swartz
Hometown: Ennerdale, Gauteng
It comes as no surprise that Dalene’s favourite singer is former Idols contestant and Top 16 alumni, Shekhinah. The BCom student is also no stranger to bright lights as she previously worked as a part-time performer around Johannesburg. Her focus though is now squarely on winning Mzansi over with her voice of gold.
Unathi called her one of her favourites and couldn’t get enough of her voice. As a vocalist for a working band, it was no surprise when Somizi complimented Dalene on being well-prepared and “blessing” the panel with her vocals. She comes from Eldorado Park in Jozi.
Favourite Musician: Shekhinah
My Favourite Song: ‘What Now’ by Rihanna
My Favourite Food: Anything with pasta!
My Favourite Style Icon: Kim Kardashian
Favourite Colour: Black and Red
One thing that brings me luck: I don’t believe in luck or that anything comes by chance. I draw my strength from God
One interesting fact that may surprise you: I like making things – my own clothes or jewellery or hair accessories. I also do hair as a part-time gig to make money
